The Trail Back Out was as a Finalist for the 2021 IAN Book of the Year Award (Short Story Collection) by the Independent Author Network,
The Trail Back Out is a collection of 10 short stories, many written during the coronavirus lockdown. From tales of Eddie, high on LSD and trapped by “What Died in the Fridge” or a compulsive gambler hiding during a Category Five storm in “Better Weather”, to the luminous title story of two strangers meeting by chance in the backwoods during a pandemic, I wanted to describe the pain and humor of being alive. Included in this collection are “Rules to Live By”, a funny and deeply thoughtful story about what we choose to teach our children. I wonder about our responsibility to others as a hunter is shot and left for dead in “The Green Under the Snow”. In “Do Dreams Float?” a wife considers a hit-man’s offer of revenge. And the eternal search for happiness is carried out by a gloomy little girl nicknamed “Princess Rain Clouds”.

Tsunami Cowboys was longlisted for the 2019 ScreenCraft Cinematic Book Award.
Prepare to meet Todd, a hero with dangerous fantasies. Coreen, trapped in a cult. Ronnie, dreaming other people’s futures. Guy, waiting for disaster at a Christmas Market. And Lynn, the connecting thread, taking a train with a seductive stranger. By turns terrifying and funny, this is the story of people riding life’s waves… the tsunami cowboys.

My first book Broken In: A Novel in Stories was a Semifinalist for the 2020 Hawk Mountain Short Story Collection Award and
In JJ’s, the bartender and a teen aged patron plan exotic trips. JJ’s chef meets several men who’d kill for her. Valuables and peace of mind literally get stolen. Couples celebrate, or split up. In a rainy night accidents happen and people vanish. These are the stories of people whose paths cross – or crash. The tales begin in a bistro and move on to Bangkok, a carnival midway, and the bottom of a lake, among other places. Broken In: whether totally random or according to plan, after tonight life will never be the same.

Grounded is the story of how two people react when cyber attacks lame the world. It’s the tale of a father’s love for his son, a woman’s search to feel alive again, and what the Arctic Circle and a temple in a remote corner of India reveal.

Superb review. Jalal
Hi Jalal, It is a delicate task to write a description of one’s own work. It took me over a year to write the book and I enjoy the writing process. But then to describe it in a few paragraphs was surprisingly hard. I’m glad you think I did a good job. Thanks for visiting my blog, —Jadi
Bonjour! I am an ex-pat living in the south of France. Thanks for stopping by one of my blogs and I am glad you found something you enjoyed.
Servus Leamuse, Where in southern France are you? Nice to meet another person between the cultures. —Jadi
